When should a skater begin taking private lessons?
A skater may begin taking private lessons at anytime. If you think your skater may be interested in competing, even if it is sometime in the future, it is important to at least be communicating with a private instructor in order to ensure that the proper steps are being taken for a future in competitive figure skating.
What are the Benefits of Taking Private Lessons?
One on one instruction allows for more rapid progression. Private Lessons allow for a more personalized training environment. A Coach can prepare skaters for Competitions and Special Events such as Ice Shows & Exhibitions.
How Do I Choose a Coach?
Read the short list of qualifications for each coach. Observe the coaches at work. Watch each instructor teach and take note of their qualities and teaching techniques that you like. This is a good way to determine which coach will work best with you and your child(ren).
How Do I Set Up Private Lessons?
Speak with the coach directly to arrange for lessons or please see the private coaching bios for email information.
Things to Remember
Each Ice Time or Freestyle session is paid for at the front desk, while private lesson fees are paid directly to the coach. Skaters do not need to complete all classes in the Learn-to-Skate Program to begin Private Lessons. Skaters can simultaneously take Learn-to-Skate and Private Lessons.
